Tournament Time

October 20, 2006

Bright and early tomorrow I will be at a tae kwon do tournament in Big Bend hosted by my school, J. K. Lee Black Belt Academy. Students from all over southeastern Wisconsin will compete there for “grand champion.” How it works is, you compete against the poeple in your division. Then all the division winners compete against each other for grand champion.

There are three different events: forms, breaking (dramatically pictured here by grandmaster Lee himself) and sparring.

I always find these tournaments really inspirational. There will be incredible martial artists there who make me say “wow” and I hope to learn a lot from them.

In addition to competing, I and the rest of my demo team will be doing a special demonstration for the assembled throng at 10:30.

Wish me luck.
